Calling the Corruptions of, War

The precedence of, Ukraine, still NOT, taken, seriously enough here, ‘cuz, oh yeah, there’s NO bombs, dropping down, blowing UP this god DAMN island that I’m currently living on, Y-E-T!!!  The Taiwanese “popularly elected government” is still FUCKING (don’t pardon me here!) us all, up!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The scandals of corruption came out, the president of Ukraine, Zelenskyy fired FOUR assistant directors of government offices, five governors, an assistant district attorney, along with many other in the higher up government, including the assistant manager of his own office, Tymoshenko.

The corruption of Ukraine is already, world-renowned, and, Zelenskyy used the slogans of “fighting corruption” to help him win the elections; and yet, his closest cabinet members are corrupt, right under his, nose.  After the Russo-Ukrainian Conflict began, he’d used the green t-shirt to shape his own heroic image, while the corruptions of his government officials, ongoing outside the camera lenses.  And, this scandal made the rest of the world realized: that the corruptions of war give off of an even, bigger stench!

what they looked like, photo from online, and more are, “coming in”…

As the soldiers of Ukraine give their lives on the frontlines, lying DEAD, the higher up officials are living high, and extravagantly.  Tymoshenko had used the Chevy that were used to extract the locals to safety as his own; the assistant basic equipment manager, in a contract that helps restored water and electric power to the people, took a bribe of $400,000 in the engineering; even the D.o.D. took the kickbacks on the meal costs for the servicemen who are fighting the war on the, frontlines.

The disclosures of all of these, scandals, had, completely, blemished the justifiable reasons of a country’s going to war.  The problem being: is this scene, only unique to, Ukraine, or, is this, the unavoidable, results of, war?

Wu and Hsiao both stated to the foreign presses, matter-of-factly:  Taiwan is ready for war as a whole society.  Recently, there came, the news of the Speaker of the House, McCarthy’s possible visit in the springtime here, it’d only been, no more than six months since the Communist Chinese fighter planes, battleships started, circling Taiwan, and now, the DDP wanted to, defy the People’s Liberation Army of China.  But, doesn’t the DDP have other tricks up its, sleeve, why does it keep on, tooting the horns of, war?

The higher up of Ukrainian government got turned over, every call that’s loud for war, sounded like the war horns of, corruption, sounding, quite, suspicious!

the “head counts” from back in 2019! “Graph” found online

Of course, the U.S. would want us to go to war with China, after all, it’d, already RETREATED all those TMSC engineers out of the country by, “extraction”, leaving this island as, a vacant lot, and, hello, hello, hello, that’s what, 13 BILLION in population across the seas in China, and how many do WE have here???  Yeah, not even close to HALF of that, and so, here’s the “dilemma” (yeah right!): do we go and save the measly millions, offending BILLIONS in China (that would be, SUICIDE in business, you DO realize that, right???) or do we just, let that god DAMN island, that we’d already shipped ALL of our, outdated battle gears to, sink?

You do the “math”…

Does it Matter, WHO, Becomes, the Next Head of State?

Of course not, as the DDP had already, RUN this country to TEN-FEET under (‘cuz six-feet ain’t, deep, ‘nough!), off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

If there are, no mishaps, the President, Tsai will be announcing the new head of state today.  But, even IF there are, accidents, we won’t be, the least bit, surprised; reason being, this circus had started playing two months back since the DDP lost the area elections.  And so, this time, the DRAG doesn’t keep our eyes, tuned, in.

Currently, the candidate for the new head of state is the former vice president, Chen.  For two months, from Su’s being asked to stay on post, to the possible candidates of Su, Chen, Gu, etc., etc., etc., etc.; to Su’s “resigning and waiting”, returning back to Gu, Su, Chen’s “possible candidates”, the disc just skips, skips, and skips, again, again, and, again, clearly, the DDP had, NO fitting personnel anymore.

a DOG that’ll roll over, play dead, SIT, STAY, SHAKE, for a “treat” is what Tsai’s looking for as her head of State! Photo of former president Obama with his poodle, from online

Looking at all of these, “possible candidates” for the “head of State”, the “first choice”, former VP, Chen’s misspeaking during the pandemic, lacking the professionalism; and he was jokingly called the “salesperson for Medigenvac”, his candidacy is, completely, questionable.  While Su’s abusing his special power, Gu’s brashness, they are all, ill-fitted for the position.  Let alone on the subject of the “time-being man of choice”, none of these can even manage the matter of the DDP’s losing the elections.

Lin who’d lost out in the mayoral race of Hsinbei City, was named as well, the one who’d nominated him stated that he was, “without flaws”.  Translation?  That he didn’t have the problems of “plagiarizing his graduate papers”.  And, if this is considered as an added quality to take over the country’s most important posts then, the government of Tsai surely had, lowered ITS, qualification in leadership style, leadership abilities, as well as morale.

Whether it be Su, Gu, or Chen, the three shared one quality: they are all very trusted by the president, Tsai.  Bluntly told, Tsai is only, looking for a surrogate for her own beliefs.  And, if this is the case, it would NOT matter, W-H-O is, the HEAD of, state.  It’s clear to see, whether Tsai plans to, “start off anew” or if she wanted to, “keep the powers at her table”.

And so, this president only wanted a good doggy, who’ll, do what he is told, and, who will be that good dog at Tsai’s feet again?  Yeah, I don’t’ think it matters, so long as she’d trained him, to NOT pee and poop EVERYWHERE all over the place, then, she wouldn’t trained her “good doggy”, well enough.  Tsai enjoyed being the puppeteer, which is why Su got FIRED, because Su went off on his own, he strayed from her rule, so she’d, OUSTED him.

The Musical Chair of Government Officials

Yep, that’s what, this, @#$%ING, government is, doing, that, “SWITCH-UP” here!

The musical chair of, government officials, yeah, because the DDP “promoted” from “within”, that’s why, the former VP is now, the head of state (OFF with HIS HEAD!) and, the current VP is still, in his, post, until, the DICTATOR feels the need, to, “behead” him, then, put another DUMMY onto the SPOT (Who’s the NEXT to get “castrated” again???).

And so, this promote from within the party is still pointless, as we’d already WITNESSED, just how god DAMN corrupt the DDP became, with Tsai as the chair of the party.

like this…

whoever’s able to, “grab” a chair gets to the State to sit NEXT to the President, and the rest who got a chair will become the members of the “cabinet”…photo from online

But, there’s NOTHING we the people, (and we ARE, still, the PEOPLE right, or, did I, miss a “memo” again here???) can do, we’d been, enslaved by the party too long, and, this long and overdue awakening of the masses still came, too little, too, late, as the DDP tasted absolutely power already, you think they’re gonna let it go, without, a coup d’état???  And, what makes you think that we the people, are barbaric, enough, to OVERTHROW this, DICTATORSHIP?  We’re still, using our pens (aka the USELESS votes!) to “voice” our, displease, and that still, does, S-H-I-T!

Ten Death in “Small Taipei”, the 72-Year-Old Suspect of California Shooting Used the Gun on Himself

Whatever the cause of this man’s going on a shooting rampage wasn’t important, this still showed how desperate the U.S. is in need of that next-to-impossible-to-pass GUN CONTROL law!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The L.A. County Police confirmed on the 22nd, that, in Monterrey Park where back in the eighties, there were the immigrants from Taiwan, the place was known as “Little Taipei” on the evening of the 21st, there was a mass shooting, and the suspect on the twenty-second, used a gun on himself to commit suicide in a white van in Torrance, California.  The deputy of the county sheriff’s office pointed out, that the seventy-two-year-old suspect, Huu Can Tran was of Asian descent, the motives of his shooting, unknown.  Based off of the locals and those who are familiar with the dance studio, “Dancing Star” where the shooting occurred, the shooting may have been due to jealousy.  This had shocked the president of the U.S. Biden, who was on vacation with his own wife, Jill, he’d ordered all federal government offices to raise the flags halfway up the staffs on the 26th to offer condolences.

the video of the news, off of YouTube

The officials told, there are no suspects on the run in this case, there were ten fatalities, ten wounded, and the motives of the shooting is still pending investigation.  The locals told, the owner of the Dancing Star, Ma came from China, he’d owned and operated the dance studio locally in Monterrey Park for more than two decades, and offered the courses in ballroom dancing, hosted many dancing competitions, the customers to the place are over fifty, mostly.

The Chinese Association in Los Angeles’s chairwoman, Chuang told, he’d known Ma many years, that this wasn’t the first time that something happened at the Dancing Star, normally, the disputes were related to how couples are upset with one another for going to the dancing studios.  Based off of what he’d known, the shooter was Asian, but because the shooter’s wife was invited to the New Year’s Eve activities, and he wasn’t, he flew into a jealous rage.  But based off of understanding, Tran may also be the Vietnamese spelling of the last name of Chen.

Chuang also told, the news of the shooting shocked all the local Asian communities, they’d worried that this may be a hate crime targeting the race, but he’d believed, that this was only a case of “domestic violence”, and due to the availability of arms everywhere, that’s what’s caused the innocents to get killed too.  Based off of the United Press, this is the FIFTH large-scale shooting since the start of January this year.

And so, this still just showed how dangerous it is, for the U.S. citizens to live in a nation where there is, NO gun control, and this man went on a shooting rampage, and killed himself, and so, we do NOT know what exactly made him went on the shooting rampage, but, because of how easily it is to own a gun in the U.S. with NO gun control law having the chances of ever being passed, these sorts of things will only keep on recurring, recurring, because the N.R.A. is what funds the Congress!

As the Government “Allowed” Us, Women, to Spend Our New Year’s Eve with Our Own Families of, Origin

The government here, RE-iterated that it SHOULD BE ALLOWED, for us women who are married (still so totally NOWHERE N-E-A-R the vicinity of THAT shit here!), to go home to our own individual families of origins for New Year’s Eve meal gatherings…

Now, the government had, called out to the families with the sons, to be “more open” to the idea, to allow us women, to have the needed “time off”, seeing how we’d waited on them (our husbands and their families) hand-AND-FEET, all year long already, to give us a break!

And called out to the in-laws to not be so “narrow-minded”, to allow us women, to head home to our own individual families of origins on New Year’s Eve.

Now, there ARE, a few (more like a ton of!) problems with that:  first, who the FUCK (so???) says, that we can’t go to our own families of origins on New Year’s Eve to have the meals, and, this government’s “graciously allowing” us to do that, wouldn’t that be insinuating that before the statements made, we weren’t allowed to?

and the “caption” reads: one in five believes that women are inferior to men, study shows…from online

Secondly, who the FUCK (no need to pardon me here still!) says, that once we women are married, we are, SLAVES to your (men’s) families, as the traditions of this god damn CULTURE stated (not in so many words still!), that we’re supposed to be MISUSED as the maid, heading home on the holidays, serving our in-laws, our husbands (1@ a time, hello, hello, hello???), and their siblings, however many there are! Hand-and foot?

And third, just because we are married to you losers (just bring that UZI to my wedding, remember???) that does NOT mean, that we’re, your SLAVES, “honey” (still sarcasm “talkin’” here!), and, that’s that.

We will NOT take any more SHIT from you losers, our has-beens (b/c that’s what you’ll become, IF you do NOT behave yourselves!), and, all you mothers-in-law out there, DO remember, that we are the ones, who will be able to give your STUPID little boys their children, and unless all you mothers want to get CHARGED with INCEST (sex with your own direct next-of-kin, hello, hello, hello!!!), DO show respect to us, women who aren’t related to you, okay???

This is still ME, asking you, “nicely”, and trust me, nobody want to see me mean, just ask my two already DEAD boys, they’d seen me like that from high school, and they’d, DUCKED out for cover.

Going Home

Family reunions are always, a total, BITCH, but hey, we can’t, avoid it, no matter what!  So yeah, we put on that painted on smile, pretend to greet each other nicely, with our fingers crossed, that this SHIT will be, over soon!  Translated…

I’d never liked the New Years.

In my childhood, there’s, the thick scent of the New Year, from buying up the foods, heading home for the New Year’s Eve meal gatherings, getting the red envelopes, staying up all night to ring in the new year, the firecrackers sounding off, to getting in our new clothes, going to wish everybody we meet a happy new year, the whole family got really into it.  After all we have the foods, the families, relatives, and friends visiting, the kids got their young playmates, with the red envelopes received, no school, no homework, we got to play for many days on end, everybody was happy then.

And, in that mood of celebration, I’d always felt, lethargic, unenthusiastic about everything, I seemed like a killjoy.

Before my childhood ended, I already noted, that the more we comply with the social norms, the more we are able to, get overly critical of those whom we eat our New Year’s Eve meals with.  If we don’t have the money, or the status, so long as we have thick enough skins, we can, turn the prodding into how we cared too much, and turned the criticisms of one another into our cares and concerns for each other.  I’d known, since the very start of it all, that I would never make the A-list of good wonderful, children, couldn’t turn in the shiny grade sheets of academia, graduation, employment, marriage, having children, it was during this time of year, that I’d, for the very first time, of how I’d become, the oddest, duck!

Many years later, I’d looked back again, those photos of us sitting for the photo ops at the photo studios, the pictures of the trips we took, the family photo of the New Year’s Eve meals, it seemed, so perfect, but, the smiles can be painted on, the words of well-wishes, we can rehearse ourselves to say to each other, seeing is, NEVER, believing.  As I grew old, I’d started, growing the perspective of that, outsider.  From my youth to after I was wed, the locations of the New Year’s Eve meals ept changing, and most of the times, I’d, carried a huge book, sitting on the edge of that table; as I couldn’t, get out of it, I shall, sit quiet, and just, watch, listen, and feel.

the foods

photo from online

The fishes, the meats served on the tables, the drinks, most fitting to exchanges the goings on of all of, our lives of late.  I’d heard those who made the highest grades, who made the most sales, who made the most of wages, gloat, their tones are, firm and, proud, like they can’t wait to tell the rest of the world.  I’d heard the sounds of chairs moving, the men sitting, waiting for the women, to serve dish after dish after dish, the elders waited for the daughters-in-law to add more wine to their glasses, to put more foods on their, plates, the infants waiting for mommies or older female siblings to coo with them, to feed them, those who busied themselves are always women, the last to sit down to eat, the first to get up to clean up, all, women.

I’d also heard the chinaware, clinking loud, also, the hearts of people, silently, knocked against one another.  Some gulfed down the foods fast, some, used the spare times to gossip, some lectured incessantly, some, evasive in answering and asking.  Some laughing loud, some, forcing that smile on, some talked really loud of their successes, others, sitting on pins and needles.  If there’s a year, that I can, not be used as that, target, I would be, too grateful, that this year would be, good.

Rationally, I understand, that no matter how good I do for myself, how I’d made up my life to perfect, under that microscope, there would be, the barely visible blemishes that’s shown up, that I will, NEVER live up to others’ expectations of me.  I also can understand, that the elders, and all the families are scattered all over the places, and this is the one and only occasion that we get to, gather up as a big family to share the time.  Problem being, year after year, I’d heard the waves getting turned over, over, over and over underneath the, surfaces, we all put on our predispositions, with the war paint on our faces, get on the battlefield of that supper table, safest is the topics that won’t cause any ripples, attacking before we were attacked, the best of tactics.  The meanings of the New Years became an excuse of forced gathering to get emotionally blackmailed.  The process of socialization, taught us to force ourselves to act courteous, to find our own ways of surviving, in the visible and invisible cannons that’s flying all over the places.

As I’d found, that there are, those who started panicking around New Year’s around me, I’d let out, that sigh of, huge, relief, and felt sad too.  New Year is no longer a happy occasion, but a, worst experience of the entire, year, we’d come into the meals with a whole year’s worth of fatigue, then, we’d, carried the exact same load, with the extra add-ons on our ways out, and, made that date for the, next year, until we are, finally, separated by death.  Then, just like that, the old wounds were never healed, the new ones came too quick, and, there’s, that nasty scent, and taste of interacting with the families, and we drift farther, farther away, from each other, and, only when we take that group photo, we looked, happy.

the photo of the family! And, how many of these do you think actually feel “happy”??? Photo from online

How regrettable, from the weakness of human nature, we blurred out the focuses of things so easily.  The meanings of the New Year, is it get the table with the family connecting, with the grand dishes prepared and served, that happiness that showed from the family photos, or, is it a reminder, of how family should be a safe harbor, that all who get into this circle is, welcomed?  Deep down, I’m sure, that we all wish, that nobody needs to put on the masks here, to protect ourselves, that everybody can, feel, relaxed, to just share a good conversations, to listen to one another.

Actually, those who feared going home the most, are the ones who needed to come home, the most.

And so, this is how these New Year’s Eve family meal gatherings are imposing to us all, I mean, why the @#$% would we, want to sit around with those whom we called “family”, put on that smiling face, to pretend that we are enjoying ourselves?  Oh yeah, because that’s our OBLIGATIONS, and, thankfully, this was only for this ONE time a year, through a span of, no more than, a whole week, and we still got the rest of the fifty-one-weeks of the year, to feel relaxed, until we get, wound up again, and that, is from the impositions of families on us as individuals, on these, celebratory occasions!

Nine Suspects Indicted in the Case of Offering High Wages to Get the Unsuspecting Abroad to Have Their Organs Harvested

There are still NO vics here, only ENABLERS!  Off of the Newspapers, translated…

The owner of a cell phone game company, Chen and others were suspected of enticing a man and a woman to work in Thailand, sent them to the KK Industrial Parks, getting their organs harvested; the female victim through the Burmese-Taipei Economic Diplomatic Offices to contact her mother to get her to pay the one million Thai Baht, was released; another victim was smart enough to make his escape back to Taiwan, the detectives chased the leads, arrested Chen and eight other suspects, the Shihlin District Attorney’s Office charged them on human trafficking laws, and illegally attempting to harvests the organs of the living.

The police chased the leads, found that the nine who were caught were between ages twenty and twenty-two, Chen is the C.E.O. of a cell phone game company, with his middle school classmate, Hu, his friend, Yuan, and a few others, found the lucrative business in enticing the unsuspecting to fly abroad to get their organs harvested to make the large sums of money; between June and August of last, they’d used the means of high wages to get a man and a woman to part-time in Thailand, also helped them get their passports, a total physical, and shipped them both out.

what those human traffickers see, when they see those, “piggies”…”diagram” found online

and the whole body adds up to??? yeah, I’m NOT doing the “math” here, okay???

The indictment pointed out, that the head of the human trafficking ring, Chen lied to the woman who’s fluent in English, that she was hired as a personal secretary to Thailand with a very high wage, but instead, he’d handed her off to another accomplice, to contact the organ harvesters from abroad, planned to make the illegal profits of $1.7 million, and transferred the woman to the KK Parks close to the Burmese border.

Until the woman shocking realized what had happened, and begged Chen to spare her, Chen finally agreed to allow her to call her families for the ransom amount, she’d contacted the Burmese Taiwanese Economic Cultural Office locally, which helped her sent her S.O.S. to her mother, and, as her mother paid one million dollars N.T. exchanged to Thai Baht, did she come back safe and sound.

As Chen and his accomplices kidnapped and extorted the woman, they’d set up another man to go abroad to have his organ harvested, and this time, using the claims that they wanted him to pick up the gambling fees of a boxing match in Thailand, that as he returned, he would be rewarded with a bonus amount, and on the payroll of the company.  As the victim arrived in Thailand, he’d found that the driver drove all the way north, which was opposite to the direction of the hotel, realized that something wasn’t right, and got away on his own.

The police and district attorneys based off of the data of exiting the country and entering, the surveillance, the conversations on the phone records, zoomed in on Chen, a primary suspect and other members of the human trafficking ring, arrested a total of nine, then, it was confirmed that they each took up a different role in the human trafficking ring.  The D.A., due to the nature of the case, asked the courts to sentence all who were involved heavily.

And, this still just showed???  That people are, STUPID!  I mean, this is still NOT an isolated case, it’d happened again, again, again, again, and again (you get the point???), and yet, these younger generations are still, falling for that same old bag of tricks, what are you, stupid?  This time (and this is the ONLY time!), these individuals came home safe, with nothing in their bodies, missing, but what OF the next time some unsuspecting younger generation members fall for it?  I mean, I came here, for the money they promised me, and I ended up getting a KIDNEY of one side of my lungs cut out!

The Crises of the Tsai Government Can’t be Resolved with Switching Su Out as the Head of State

How it’s the president, at the helm of the DDP’s fault, for allowing all who worked underneath her status, to stray, and it’s HER fault, for NOT setting a better example for those who are lower than her, and that’s exactly W-H-Y, the corruption of the DDP is from the head down, and, the bobble-head president still refuse to see the truth about her “carefully selected” cabinet members, talk about BLIND!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

In the pressures of public opinion, the head of state, Su finally turned in his resignation before New Year’s Eve, and told the president to APPOINT someone else to fill up his post.  What’s odd was, the government did NOT list out all the possible candidates for this position.  What’s worth noting was, the president’s office did NOT propose the individuals for the new head of state, only stated, that the current group will do its very best until the end, and they are going to adjust the means of working at the offices during the New Year’s holidays.  All the signs points to, that it’s not set in stone yet, that the rumors of having the former vice president, Chen or the mayor of Taoyuan, Cheng as the head and assistant head of state.  It’d been close to two months since Su sent in his resignation, but, in assigning the offices to the persons, the president, Tsai was hit hard by the forces, couldn’t decide who goes where, and, this is, worrisome.

In actuality, with the former VP, Chen and Cheng in the proposed positions, this wouldn’t be at all, ideal.  Reason being, that both were debatable in their actions and their words; in the Medigenvac purchasing cases, Chen had sided with Medigenvac, and his role in the biotech company is questioned by the people in the country; and, in the plagiarism case of Lin, Chen and Cheng both backed Lin up, while Cheng himself, got his degree tossed by N.T.U. on plagiarizing.  These issues regarding their moralities, surely, destroyed both men’s credibility, and, in the future, there would be more questions that will hit them even, harder than before.

like this, with all those problems of the country STACKING up behind its back, it still tried to SHUT the people up! Political cartoon from online

Besides, Chen’s being up for the post of the head of state was NOT because of his talents that made him stand out, instead, it’d because he is weak in his political personality, which made the party easy to manipulate.  He was once the vice president, and could KNOW what Tsai’s plans were, keep Tsai from crippling herself too soon.  And yet, after Chen got out of his position as the VP, he’d already returned to the researches, and even though at the end of two years ago, he’d suddenly entered formally into the party, which made people think, that Tsai may have plans for him for the future; but to recently, he’d still, denied having been invited to work in Tsai’s government, which added more questions.

Which showed, that Tsai’s plans of appointing the new head of state wasn’t working as well as she’d, anticipated, that’s why she’d, delayed it over, over, over, and over, which kept Su who’s questionable in his actions, in office.  Originally, Tsai had planned to switch the members of the cabinet out as the legislative session is over, and now, she’d, delayed it to after the New Year’s, including Su called to Tsai to nominate someone soon, this was, truly, bizarre.  Looking at it even closer, the loss of power of the government of Tsai, won’t get resolved by switching out her head of state, Su, only if she’d switched those ill-fitted for the posts of the various offices in the government who are lacking the moralities, the abilities, and the professionalism, then, there will be the possibility of the government changing for the better.

Reason for why Su the head of state upset everybody, other than his brashness, also, the members of his office are all without manners, bossy, uncourteous to a fault.  With the entire culture of his cabinet run on ideologies, with the benefits of the political party as the primary aims, no sense of political understanding, using the slick of tongues, to talk their ways out, that was, considered as able-bodied members of his cabinet.  For instance, from the former head of state, Chen to Shue, Chen, the chairperson of the agricultural department, they’re all, examples of this, did what they wanted to, without considering anything else.  And, Wu, the head of department of foreign affairs, who’d reduced our diplomatic relations with other countries to next to nil, he’d talked incessantly on the relations with China the most.  As for the chairman of the Chinese-Taiwanese Committee, Chiu, maintained his silence, and does, absolutely NOTHING.  And, there’s the chair of the N.C.C., Chen, who kept on taking away the right of free speech, of free news media, are these all, fitting to work in their, posts?

On the means of characters, the head of the N.S.A., Chen’s students are involved in the shameful incidents of plagiarism, he’d not only not stepped down, he’d stomped on the objectiveness one needs to maintain in research too.  And, the head of C.D.C., Wang, the scandals of his affair and illegitimate child, due to the higher up’s favoring him, he still got to that higher position.  If these immoral officials don’t get pulled out of office, how can we feel, that the legislation is, changing for the better?

For the last four years, Su made his calls “based off of the party preferences and not what’s right”, this disgusted us all; but, if we want the individual to blame, it would be Tsai.  Tsai’s allowing the head of state of to toot his own horn, just allowing the members of her cabinet to fall to immorality, without any mind to change, even, she’d allowed the heads of the offices to use her favoritism to do what they will, turning the political culture of this country to barbaric.  The entire government is numbed out on the extremities, lacking awareness of the rotten from the inside, and are all of these, not, Tsai’s, responsibilities?

And so, this is how as the HEAD of things became corrupt, the rotting goes, all the way down, to the roots, and, because of this, popularly voted DICTATOR started hogging power, she’d allowed all the members of her office, as well as those heads of the cities from her party, to ruin us all, and, what needed to get switched OUT still isn’t Su the HEAD of STATE, but the ENTIRE DDP, but, are the people in this god DAMN country awake yet?  Yeah, I think, N-O-T!

The Cause of Poverty: Broken Relationships with the Families

The understanding, the awareness, that the writer arrived at, on his trip around Taiwan, to visit the distant region areas, where there are, too many families, waiting for, assistance, the call, for everybody to lend that, helping hand!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

I’d recently finished the fundraiser, 1919 Cycling Around Taiwan, the fifteen day cycling trip of “I ride, You donate”, for the families in dire need.  With a team of sixty-two cyclist, riding 1,300 kilometers around Taiwan, and we’d visited twenty-nine help center, to understand the trials of life of the families hit by emergency situations, hearing their voices, helped them walk that extra mile.  The fifteen days’ of in-depth entering into the poverty-stricken, distant regions, made me see what poverty looked like, and it’d made me realized, that “the origins of poverty WAS from the broken family relations!”

the plea…

In actuality, poverty is a widely defined concept, there’s no set definition of it.  From the language, the two characters mean “extremely deprived”, so, poverty is used to describe people living in the hardships of economics, with a shortage of all the resources they’re in need of.  But, being poor, it’s a subjective interpretation, and a comparative; and, there are more levels of poverty than just the economical, materialistic, it may also include societal, economical, as well as political.  In my fifteen days cycling to raise fund for the poverty stricken regions, with personal contact, interactions with the dozens of families, it’d made me feel, that poverty is actually the results of “broken relationships”, especially of the family relationships that were, broken down.

Aunty Chang in Pingdong, is an exemplary case of this.  Aunty Chang is seventy-one, with the condition of mildly mental retardation, live with her younger brother who had a stroke, her own emotionally troubled son, and the nephew with epilepsy.  This family of four lived off of the assistance of handicapped individuals, and the assistance for the elderly.  What added to their difficulties was, that last year, there was a fire on the second floor of their home, the furniture all burned up, there’s now, just the living room on the first floor that can be, used, the originally home with almost nothing now, looked like ruins, and, as it rained, the house would, start, leaking, the place was totally, unoccupiable.  Our teams helped fixed up Aunty Chang’s home, and as she’d cried and told of her trials of life, I can only cry with her, and hugged her, to give her the emotional supports, and told the assistance foundation, to help them look for more resources to help the family, to help them fix up this broken home, so at least this family would have a steady roof over their, heads.

And, there was, an Atayal fellow cyclist this year on our team, who’d, gone on the entire fifteen days’ trip with us.  He’d witnessed the needs of these families, and shared with me, that what he saw, was no different than what he was growing up in, forty years ago.  When this man was only five, his father died from long-term alcohol abuse, leaving his mother, to raise him and his siblings up.  Thankfully, that his mother insisted on getting the children into the church, to help them keep their, faith; because of the church’s unconditional love, and help, it’d helped covered for the lacking of functionality of his family, and it’d helped the family members patched their relationship with one another, up, keeping this Atayal teammate of ours, not gone astray, and he was able to break away from the cycle of poverty, to not pass it down to the next, generation.

And now, the 1919 Cycling Around Taiwan’s fifteen-day long journey is over, but, the needs of these families in the distant regions are still, pressing, and all we can do, is to keep watch over them, continue to accompany these families in need, help raise the funds for the families that are faced with the emergencies, to help those who have the needs, for one more, extra, mile.  I invite you, the readers, to offer a helping hand to those families that are broken down, lacking the normal functions, so the members of these families can, have the hopes for a better, tomorrow.

what we can do to help!

Because of you, love cycles!  Help us help those in poverty, to return the relations we share with the outside world back to, love again.

And so, this, is from going deep into the local regions, to SEE and FEEL the needs of these families, and, if we don’t get immersed in the trials of others, and learn to empathize with their situations in life, we will never be driven to help.

With U.S. as the “Puppeteer”, the Talk of Peace Between China & Taiwan Became an Impossibility

Taiwan is still, the, BIGGEST L-O-S-E-R, if war between us and China is imminent, and yet, the DDP and Tsai still believe the lies of U.S., grabbing onto whatever STRAWS they think that will save this country from Communist Chinese takeover!  As war becomes, almost, unavoidable here…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The tactic thinktank rehearsed the outcomes of war between Taiwan and China, and the end result was, Taiwan destroyed, the American armed services won, but barely, the armed forces of China, nearly completely DESTROYED.  This is very awakening, if the armed forces are sent under the willingness of the U.S., working with Taiwan under certain circumstances, this is actually, U.S.’s cognitive warfare toward Taiwan, hoping that we purchase MORE weapons from them, to FIGHT Communist China, to help the U.S., diminish the Chinese powers that are, rising up slowly.

Wanting to use Taiwan as a dummy, the setting of war is in China, believing, that they’d, set the perfect trap for China to be dumb enough to take the bait, to destroy the USELESS country of Taiwan, and in the end, China will carry the historical bad reputations, turning the 23 million of people in Taiwan into, adversaries for life with the Chinese, never reaching that peace.

what Taiwan gets turned, into: D-U-M-M-I-ES!!! Photo from online

It’s not that Communist China won’t attack Taiwan, but it’d already, drawn the lines, and the boundaries of “Taiwanese Independence and Foreign Countries’ Taking Over” simply won’t get, breached.  Looking at how the Tsai government danced along with the U.S. tunes, losing the means of communication that we have with China, the liberation armed forces circled around Taiwan in the drills, shooting the missiles over our aerial zones, shutting us up in fear.  The actions of the People’s Liberation Army is borderline toward that breakdown point, clearly, China is, upset over the behaviors of Taiwan and U.S. too; these new interaction style is becoming the norm, and, it’s hard to guarantee, that there won’t be, any, “accidents”.

Where’s the limits to the Taiwanese political considerations of the armed forces?  The dignity of the country had been bullied by the dictatorship, we’d, taken the Americans for their words in arming up, buying the super expensive war machineries that the U.S. is throwing away as garbage, and, fighting this war that wasn’t even from the very start, we can’t, complain about any of it.  Forcing ourselves to arm up, to bury down the mines, setting up the armory storage for the ammunition we are in need of, lengthening the service terms, putting the younger generations in the warzones, onto the, battlefields, we’d become, subjugates to another country, just, following orders.

Enticing Taiwan to fight China, it’d become, a world trend, like, how we must go to war, to show how strong, how tough we, are?  You think that by setting up the weapon storage bases in Taiwan, will stop China from advancing?  Especially, the thinktank also, suggested giving Taiwan the missiles that can destroy Shanghai too, this is making the people in China HATE Taiwan even more, and why does the government of Tsai not make a sound, and still, she and the DDP called out to “maintain that peaceful term with China”?

If Taiwan goes to war with China, it’ll be the people in Taiwan who ends up DEAD, the brash lies of the authorities told, a million times over, still won’t be, true.

And yet, the government of Tsai still, insisted on making US, into U.S.’s BITCH, and she still failed to take the precedence of the Russo-Ukrainian Conflicts from before, and, if this country goes to war with China, we will be completely, WIPED out, but hey, who CARES, I mean, the U.S. already “shipped” all the workers of TMSC overseas to give them U.S. citizenship or PR, and this island became, TRASH to the U.S., it already got the technologies from us, along with those workers who don’t mind working their quadruple OTs to the U.S., they got nothing to lose, while Taiwan is, risking EVERYTHING in defying China here, and the @#$%ING DDP government still can’t see that!  How BLIND can you be???
